Creativity and digital innovation festival, Digifest, will return next spring at George Brown College – School of Design.

We’re excited to present this year’s theme “Phygital – Realm of the Senses”, a dynamic program exploring the five senses of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell.

Digifest invites the creative community and George Brown College faculty, staff, alumni and students working in a variety of media to submit art work for the Digifest cyber art gallery. You are welcome to apply as an individual or as a group. The exhibition will be featured as an interactive virtual gallery, presented in a collaborative 3D virtual space using Mozilla Hubs platform.
